Now, I think I did something on the monday, but you know, I cant for the life of me remember what it was. Man I have to start blogging more frequently… or keeping a diary, but I suppose that is what this is.
So Kate started Year 1 on tuesday. Only 2 other kids from her old class went into the new class. I was a little worried about that but I know she is in good hands as her teacher is awesome! I had a brief chat with her teacher as I thought maybe the class may have been graded, which was why she wasn’t with her friends, but it isnt. So thats all good.
Wednesday was just a boring home day. I had to go to the Family Day Care office to enrol Luke though as I am putting him in care one day a week (to start with) so I can get some uni work done.
Thursday, well well well. I had a marvelous day! I went to my grandparents as Kate left something behind when she stayed there in the holidays, and then I drove a bit further up the mountains to go and visit Lusi for the day! I love this girl! We get on so well and I feel really comfortable with her. The kids got on famously too, which was awesome! Luke and Elijah were collecting snails and playing lego and playing with Buzz. I think Luke had just a good a day as me! Had so much fun talking about scrapping, and family and just well, stuff! Can’t wait to do it again! Lusi is such a scrapping inspiration to me! She even gave me a notebook for my birthday which is gorgeous!
Afterwards I picked Kate up from school and then went to a lady’s house to check it out for Luke to go there for care. It turns out that she has a daughter in year one aswell, and yep, even in Kate’s class! LOL! It’s such a small world! I will reserve my judgements until he starts there, but for now, I feel a little obliged to send him there. We shall see I guess.
Friday. Hmm it wasnt that long ago, so what did I do? Thats right, I had a nice sleep with Luke for an hour and a half. Thursday nights are the worst for me, I just hit the wall and then it takes me all day friday to recover. Luke was a great kid and even had a nap with me! 🙂
Saturday I got to sleep in – yay! We went out to Forty Winks and bought a new matress for Luke but its not in stock until wednesday. Then we had KFC for lunch. Yum. Then we just bummed around and got a DVD out to watch – the Jack Black one where he is a wrestler, man I am having the biggest brain fart in the world! Anyway we watched that and had an early night.
Sunday we cleaned all day. Not only that we put up DD’s old bed that she didn’t like at the time. It is one of those raised beds with the bookshelf and cupboard underneath. She wanted it so we moved her bed into Luke’s room as he climbed out of the cot and well he is 3 now so its about time. So the whole house is spic and span and we shall see how long that lasts………
I started a Photo A Day challenge over at Blue Bazaar and well, I only took my forst photo yesterday. A self portrait. It turned out ok enough. I did it in the bathroom mirror. I am so thankful for the moveable LCD screen on the camera. LOL!
I am also participating in Reality Scraps over at Scrapbook City and I have made it through the qualifying round and now I am in the challenge with 20 other very talented ladies. It is very exciting to say the least! Our qualifying challenge was to do a layout about what we wanted to get out of Reality Scraps. And here was my entry. A layout inspired by a talk me and Lusi had about just ‘letting go’ and having fun!
I just love the challenge to be honest. I work better with a challenge or a deadline. The week 1 challenge is ‘My Passion’. I have a couple, not many really. But I have a few thoughts in my head.
So I sit here now contemplating driving over to Spotlight, I heard they had a good deal on Urban Lily stuff, and thinking I would also like to get some fish for dinner. I think I just may pull my finger out of my behind and go and do just that.
Ok, take care and thanks for stopping by!!! 😀
